      RMHC Gave Us Peace Of Mind

      To Graciela and Jose Acosta, RMHC is nothing short of a blessing.  The family stayed at the Ronald McDonald House near Advocate Hope Children’s Hospital for a month when their son, Santiago was a very sick infant.  As soon as they arrived, a burden was lifted. “When we came to the door something cha...

      RMHC has been there for us through the years

      My family’s first experience with the Ronald McDonald House of Durham and Wake was when my son Paris was three years old.

      It's hard to put into words what RMHC has meant to us

      When Noelle Johnson is asked about her son Jordan’s health, she can rattle off the dates of his three heart surgeries, his seven-month stay in the hospital as a newborn, when he got a tracheotomy tube inserted to help him breathe and the nights she’s spent by her 12-year-old’s side every time he’s c...

      RMHC helped us cope while our child was hospitalized

      I knew about RMHC before our daughter Autumn was hospitalized, but I had no idea what it would mean to us to be able to stay at the House. I had no idea just how much thought and effort staff and volunteers put into making life easier for families with sick children. Our eleven-month-old daughter Au... Read more about The Wehr Family

      Mia’s treatments take her far from home

      Mia Sollars suffered a stroke in utero, and at six months old she was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. Cindi and Brad wanted to make sure Mia would get the absolute best care, so they chose Lurie Children's Hospital in Chicago, despite living 120 miles away.  At first, Cindi rented an apartment in...
